The iTV Doctor Is In! Five iTV Executives Looking for a Gig

Dear Readers:

As we've previously noted, 2009 was sort of a rough time for folks in the interactive TV business, particularly with the expansion and contraction of the various companies that make their living by providing iTV technology, applications and support. And so far, 2010 isn't looking any better.

If you're Looking for a Gig, whether full-time or part-time, permanent or temporary, salaried or contract, or just want to see what's out there, send me a BRIEF capabilities description. Make it approximately a double-tweet (280 characters). And give me a pseudonym that I can publish--that way I can keep your identity private.

We'll publish these Looking for a Gig double-tweets as we get them. And if somebody is interested, they can email me directly and I'll hook you up. How's that for service!

So send your Looking for a Gig double-tweets, with your pseudonym, to
